Description

This chapter  shows that at a given site of engagement, a high level of  communicative skills become necessary for health professionals if they are to  determine their discourse and professional goals: identifying health needs through  the elicitation of often sensitive information, and in  turn imparting information  that is understood, so that the end result is the patient’s necessary behaviour  change to improve health. thus,  health goals will be mutually identified and agreed.
